Mid-Autumn Festival will be over soon. Fancy mooncake boxes; Love or Loathe them? Keep or Throw? Reuse or Upcycle? Anything but recycling, because fancy packaging can’t be easily recycled.
Furthermore, recycling is NOT working, and definitely NOT the answer to our mounting waste pollution problems. I buy my mooncake sans packaging. If I see nice mooncakes boxes, I’ll shamelessly ask for them. If you have been throwing away your mooncake boxes and wonder what else you can do with them, here are some ways that I reuse the containers.
// Serving tray, for pretty tea sessions
// Laptop stand, to improve airflow
// Baby keepsake box, for the most beautiful memories
// Bookstand, for current reads
// Desk organiser, for hiding away all stationery mess
// Toolbox, for the handywoman in me
// Pantry organiser, for better space management
// New arrival, looks suitable as CNY decor like this
